Doom Has to Prove Itself Again, Says Bethesda
Filed under: DOOM 4


Doom 4 did not make an appearance at the E3 2014. However, they did release a pitiful-looking teaser for the game, along with the announcement that the game will be unveiled at QuakeCon 2014. It was recently explained though that the game will be showcased exclusively to QuakeCon attendees.

Bethesda is now facing the reality of things and are basically saying that Doom, as a franchise, needs to win its fans back, admitted Pete Hines Bethesda's PR and VP of marketing.

Hines added: "We view that similarly to Wolfenstein, because it's been so long since the last Doom game. We are going in as if we need to prove ourselves all over again. We have no free passes. Nobody will assume this is going to be awesome."

Yep, they are right. Not a lot of people are excited about this. Not until they give us some proper proof. Also, how the hell can we be excited about it after disappointments like Rage.

Rage wasn't a disappointment for me at all. The graphics quality combined with the constant high framerate it played with on my laptop with GT130M (!!!) was very well enough to impress me back then. Plus the game wasn't so bad. The story was meh and the game was short, but the gameplay outstanding, it had good atmosphere, some original ideas... So yeah, not an incredible game, but definitely not a terrible one.

When RAGE came out it sucked... Main gripe with it was streaming textures, specially when moving around really fast. The last chapter felt rushed. It felt like they were trying to do Borderlands except not that well excecuted.

One game fails to become a classic and suddenly they have to prove they aren't shit? God. Gamers are fucking wankers.

I for one, love Rage. To me its ideas and its implimentation where brilliantly done.
Sure the game had some issues, but what Game doesnt.

My biggest issue was the Driving model and I also think the crafting side was very much unrealized and made more complicated than it needed to be.

Having said that the game was as much and more than I expected.

Couldn't get into Rage. Even with my man John Goodman, the game couldn't get me. Just didn't like the story and I think the gameplay mechanics might have thrown me off too.

I'll eventually reinstall it and try again down the road. I don't want to disappoint Mr. Goodman.

I liked Rage, but it was a huge disappointment to me because it should have been about 5 times longer MINIMUM. So much potential. I prefer novels, not short stories.
